Bluefly’s Newest Closet Confession: Chanel Iman

 

If you’re a huge Victoria’s Secret angels fan like myself, you are sure to love Bluefly’s newest Closet Confession featuring Chanel Iman! Not only is this model gorgeous, but she has killer style and unique pieces that travel everywhere with her. Even though she is always on the road, she makes herself feel at home anywhere she goes with her clothes and the ambiance she creates in her room.

 

She has collected such an interesting array of clothing that I can only swoon over. (I’m jealous of her biker jacket–so tough and chic!) Since she has walked in a show for just about every designer, she has built a relationship with them and they gift her such cute pieces! It’s adorable how much she treasures her clothing!

Take a look at the vid on Bluefly!

 
 

Susie Bubble Has Seven “Brothel Creepers”

When we shot Susie Bubble’s Closet Confession at the end of last year, we were struck by the sheer volume of collectibles in her closet. We asked her to break down the vintage from the DIY, the chain mail from the tinsel — and out came this infographic. Click the graphic (or here) for an expanded view of Susie’s Closet, and a definition for those of us Yanks who have no clue what a “brothel creeper” is.

Watch me on E! Tonight

 

 

Even though I’ve done NYLON TV and other on-camera work, my new show Scouted is going to be eight episodes, on a nationally syndicated cable news network–there are going to be a lot of eyes on it! As a fashion consultant/stylist, a lot of my work is done primarily behind the scenes so this will definitely be an exercise in believing in myself and feeling confident!

 

Seeing myself on film versus a still photograph definitely has me inspecting myself a lot more. I’m used to looking at pictures of myself; I think we’re all used to seeing images of ourselves, but we don’t really see ourselves interacting. I saw a clip of myself recently in an E! News segment and, how do I look? I could take myself apart, but I look like me–I wanna get it through my head that that’s fine.

 

Besides, no one’s looking that closely anyway; no one sees the tiny things you see. We’re all our own worst critics.

 

With the show coming out, I’ve been watching a decent amount of television and I never look at anyone and think ‘Oh, look at the way her forehead wrinkles,’ or ‘Her nose looks fat at that angle.’ You just watch it for the bigger picture. It’s all been an exercise in not getting caught up in over-analyzing myself–and just enjoying this really exciting time in my career and life.

 

 
 

Bloggers Should Write Whatever They Want — Provided It’s Original

Cathy Horyn thinks bloggers should write about news, not opinion or criticism.

 

Diversity has been key in pushing certain fashion blogs and bloggers to the forefront: Tommy Ton for Jak and Jil, and his sharp eye / super zoomed in shots.  The Man Repeller for her way with words — and for pulling off turbans and harem pants, even though she isn’t Aladdin.  The Emperor’s Old Clothes’ acid sharp reviews that have me spluttering tea at my keyboard in laughter.  Emily Weiss of Into the Gloss for doing in-depth beauty Q&As that go beyond a review of yet another mascara.  Natalie Joos of Tales of Endearment and her endless photo slideshows that make me want to do vintage shopping marathons…

 

Susie Bubble blogging - Fly & Mighty

Me at my laptop during my Bluefly Closet Confessions shoot

The key to all of this though, is original content — be it in creating images of people, of clothes, of shops; procuring information through interviews; or expounding originality of thought — which in essence is the “opinion or criticism” that Horyn is referring to. When “opinion or criticism” is ACTUALLY engaging, I don’t see that as a bad thing.

 

I agree with Horyn about encouraging budding fashion bloggers to report on what’s out THERE; to seize the moment and really find out what’s going on in THEIR fashion world, and to blog about it through their eyes.  Luckily for me because I live in London, that involves visiting the studios of a throng of interesting designers; and seeing shops, exhibitions, and a whole host of fashion-centric activity from which I can churn out a never-ending stream of blog posts that makes up much of what my blog Style Bubble is about.

 

I’d love to see points of view on localised fashion from all parts of the world — outside of the obvious cities.  What about a local tailor who has been quietly making clothes for the past 30 years?  A peculiar bric-a-brac shop that sometimes sells interesting antique clothing?  A local archive of Halston gowns hidden away in a university in Texas?  These are the sort of stories that could do with someone doing some light investigation on.

 

What makes for repetitive viewing are reblogged stories from bigger news sources, or commenting on the same set of celebrity images that get syndicated over and over again.  This is content creation that can be done purely confined in a bedroom and, despite the size of the WWW, can be a narrow view of fashion if you’re looking to create content that purely relies on other blogs and sites.

 

It might take longer to go out there, arrange a visit with a designer, take the photos, and come home to write and edit, but the content will be so much more worthwhile and engaging for readers.  I may use the internet as a platform for communication, but that shouldn’t mean the origin of content is restricted to the internets too.
